At this point in the series I feel like the main plot is getting super repetitive. I'm also a little tired of the main character being ENTIRELY unable to make up her mind about anything, and about the secondary female character ALWAYS being angry abo...more

Honestly better than I expected it to be. Its a little heavy handed in its moralizing about appearances, but that was a given if you knew anything about it, and still an important message for YA I believe. No real unpredictable twists or unique thing...more

The only thing that nocked this one down a star was the ever so old and tiring Teenage Love Triangle. "Oh no, I'm 16 and in a horrible life situation and somehow all I can think about is that two boys seem to thing I'm the best thing on the earth, ho...more

As always, Nick Harkaway blows me away with his characters and their voice. No one else writes characters that feel so real to me, or have flaws and personalities and internal voices that I can understand and believe in.

I feel like as an author, he...more

Dorothy L. Sayers
“Books... are like lobster shells, we surround ourselves with 'em, then we grow out of 'em and leave 'em behind, as evidence of our earlier stages of development.”
Dorothy L. Sayers

Gordon B. Hinckley
“True love is not so much a matter of romance as it is a matter of anxious concern for the well-being of one's companion.”
Gordon B. Hinckley, Stand a Little Taller

Jasper Fforde
“After all, reading is arguably a far more creative and imaginative process than writing; when the reader creates emotion in their head, or the colors of the sky during the setting sun, or the smell of a warm summer's breeze on their face, they should reserve as much praise for themselves as they do for the writer - perhaps more.”
Jasper Fforde, The Well of Lost Plots

Søren Kierkegaard
“Life can only be understood backwards; but it must be lived forwards.”
Søren Kierkegaard

Peter S. Beagle
“The true secret in being a hero lies in knowing the order of things. The swineherd cannot already be wed to the princess when he embarks on his adventures, nor can the boy knock on the witch's door when she is already away on vacation. The wicked uncle cannot be found out and foiled before he does something wicked. Things must happen when it is time for them to happen. Quests may not simply be abandoned; prophecies may not be left to rot like unpicked fruit; unicorns may go unrescued for a very long time, but not forever. The happy ending cannot come in the middle of the story.”
Peter S. Beagle, The Last Unicorn
